    3:00 - 4:00am EST  

3:00am
fame, allows you to inspire people, what would you choose? >> i certainly think it's a life of meaning, i don't think it, i know it is. feeling life matters. you and i have both had lots of friends who have achieved everything. they're missing a meaningful life. meaning comes from two things. happiness comes from progress, if you can do something where you're growing and because you've grown, you have something to drive to other people that's meaningful, insight, love, caring, something, life is rich. happiness comes and goes. happiness isn't all it's cracked up to be. meaning is, there are people who have gone through horrible times, a woman who is 109 years old, she was in the concentration camps. that woman's life is so rich because of all the pain. still at 109 she's strong. she shares her music, she does the things that make her feel
3:01am
like she has a contribution. >> as always, incredibly inspiring.
3:02am
3:03am
and mark mckay is there, and he is watching up aof this go down, live in realtime. and mark as you're watching this, you know, it's on the loud speaker, instead of hearing they're on the 49 and it's a drive or a flag on the play and people are starting to do the wave, entertaining themselves. people get a little bit happy, and they get a little restless. and then i'm sure you guys
3:04am
wondered is this going to turn ugly? >> we wondered how long it would go on, it lasted for 34 minutes. there were announcements made to us over 75,000 in the dome to remain in our seats. that delay stretched 34 minutes before football came back. the 49ers trailed by 22 points. they were down by 20 points. it seemed as if the ravens were running away with this game just after half time, jacoby jones ran back the opening kickoff to the second half, 109 yardses for a score, and then the power went out. it didn't completely go out, the dome wasn't completely tossed into darkness, but it was enough to halt the game. players on both sides were on the sidelines trying their best to stay limbered up, trying their best to wait out this delay. in the stands, folks were starting to get a bit restless. air conditioning had gone off. it was starting to get quite warm in the upper regions where
3:05am
we were. and then everything came back, including the 49ers, coming all the way back and falling just short of the end as the ravens are crowned super bowl champions for the second time in franchise histo history. yes, maybe things would have been different if san francisco had come back to win this game. >> it made a whole lot of people nervous, including myself, as we were watching this, we could see the harbaugh brothers, the coaches, there was -- i think it was john who really became upset. he had a talking to. he knew he had some he was not happy about it. >> no, he wasn't. and for good reason, as soon as the lights came on, the game came back, colin kaepernick and the 49ers got themselves back into this game. they made it a game.
3:06am
no one could give john harbaugh the answer as to what he needed. at this hour, we don't know, the investigation is still underway as to why we had a partial power failure at the louisiana superdome, not only included lights inside but outside as well. it was concentrated on the dome property, it wasn't necessarily in the neighborhood here, but it is something that's continued to be investigated at this hour, there's no answers as to why it went down. >> well, that's what they say. i would imagine that's initial reports. they could be right, but i think still, there's some time between now and tomorrow and before this entire investigation plays out. mark mckay, stand by, i'm sure we're going to need you, we're not sure what time we're going to go off the air tonight. you're going to have to delay your plans to go down to bourbon street we're going to need you to do some reporting tonight. a statement i just got in from the power company, at all times, entergy's distribution was
3:07am
serving the superdome. entergy is the company that supplies energy to new orleans power public service incorporated. we continue working with superdome personnel to address any outstanding issues. here's what cbs is saying tonight. immediately after the power failure, we lost numerous cameras and some audio powered by sources in the superdome, we utilized cbs's backup power and at no time did we leave the air. they were doing a lot of dancing on the air the sportscasters, because they were just dancing, they didn't know what to do. terence moore, down in new orleans. standing outside the superdome. they have given out all the trophies. we were looking at all the partying on bourbon street.
3:08am
they're headed that way there they are. that's baltimore. they're partying in baltimore, partying in new orleans. and terence they're streaming out of the superdome, i'm sure. this was indeed, this is not a cliche when it comes to this one, a nail biter. >> no question about it. i have to say this, there will be a controversy that could be rather huge here. because there was one report on the internet from espn that the fire marshalls said that there was a fire at some point in the superdome around an elevator, okay? so if that is true, then that could be a problem, because they kept announcing -- the p.a. announcers kept announcing for everyone to stay in their seats, be calm. we all know what happened in brazil with that nightclub. if that is true, there's going to be have to be a lot of explanation there as to why people were told to stay still,
3:09am
don't move -- >> terence. >> there was not an evacuation taking place. >> say again, what was the issue? >> the issue was, espn was reporting and i guess a couple other wire services were reporting there's a helicopter going above me right now. >> we can hear you. >> that the fire marshall said there was a fire reported in the superdome near an elevator. as a matter of fact, the report also said one of the elevators was not working supposedly because of this fire. the problem with that is, in the superdome, they kept announcing over and over again, to tell everybody to stay in their seats and don't move. my contention is, we all know what happened a few days ago with the nightclub fire in brazil, where you had bodyguards or people -- the bouncers blocking the doors so people can't get out. this was not the right move, the move, if this is true was to have people calmly evacuate the
3:10am
superdome. again, that was one report that the fire marshalls had said that. you just mentioned the mayor said -- there's going to be a complete review of the situation. let's wait and see what happens when it comes to that. >> yeah. okay. listen. again, that's not cnn's reporting, but we'll check on that and see if that is indeed true. if you are right, that is the wrong thing to do. let us get now to jim harbaugh. you know when -- he just got up. jim harbaugh just addressed the crowd there in new orleans. the loser always goes first. i guess he was probably congratulating his brother. we missed it because we were getting breaking news from you on a report about a possible fire in an elevator. we don't know if that's true. that's cnn's reporting. i'm looking off here because i'm looking at the feed coming in. this is a celebration out in baltimore. we'll check on what you said about a possible fire in an elevator, if that's true, depending on where that fire was
3:11am
and how severe it was it would cause evacuating. but not in all cases when there's a fire. when there's a fire with wiring, with fuses that can cause the power to go out. a tale of two cities here, the city on the left, the winning city is baltimore maryland. the city on the right is, we hope still the winning city, depending on the situation when all the reports come in it will be -- that's the city of new orleans. joe flacco, the ravens quarterback is the most valuable player, he's speaking now, addressing the media. let's listen in. >> you've seen those guys do it. they have the ability to score and score quickly. that's kind of what they did there.
3:12am
we got them to 28-6, they were able to go the length of the field and put a good drive together. and we kind of -- you know, we didn't get anywhere on our third down, first, second and third down. we got a punt return and boom. games happen -- games can go like that, that's why you have to take care of the football and get first downs, but -- we have a team that no matter what the situation, we're going to overcome it to the best of our ability and it's kind of fitting that we won it like that today. >> is it special for you? >> yeah, it's unbelievable. especially the way it happened. the niners drive all the way down the field and they stop them on four straight downs on the five yard line. it's pretty cool. everyone knows he's an unbelievable football player, but he's the best teammate and it's unbelievable to send him out like this. and the reason for that is, he
3:13am
just wanted us to know what it feels like to win this thing. he's felt it, and he wanted to feel it again. but he really wanted us to feel that. and we all made it happen today. >> how did the confetti feel and all the thoughts of going through it, and actually going through it. >> they shoot a lot of it out there, it's pretty cool. we're walking off the field, it was like it just snowed confetti and it was all for us. it felt good. >> both teams had to deal with it, we came off -- i think they were facing a 3rd and 14 and we didn't do anything with the ball. >> 15 touchdowns, december 6th. >> i don't know, man. it happens like that. i don't think i'm a person that throws a lot of picks in general.
3:14am
we've played 20 games this year, i think i've thrown ten of them. it just happens that way. the team came together and got healthy and we hit our stride at the right point and that's why we're standing where we are today. >> awesome, man. he came up huge. he did a great job getting open on some of the routes he had. and relied on them big time at the end on one of those third downs. they rotated over the top of them, so you really wouldn't throw that ball too much. but he had a little bit of separation there. and he did a great job catching that football. that's a beast right there. >> everybody does. they have to give it to one guy, i'm not going to complain that i got it. >> how important is it to have that kind of word from the owner. >> it's cool. we just won the super bowl. he did let me know that if the day came, i could go beat on his desk and really put it to him.
3:15am
that's exactly what i'm going to do. >> you talk about -- >> yeah, that's what the game called for. there were sometimes when they broke through, sometimes when they did a good job covering people. you could see that on film. you knew they were going to have tight coverage on the receivers. some things just work out that way. those kept the drives going. allowed us to put those points on the board. the first half -- this game always comes down to two minute drives. that's exactly what it came down to today. we were able to get it done in the first half. we were able to get it done. i don't ever want to feel like i'm in a position to deened if myself. it's not right. i don't have to do that.
3:16am
but we'll have this thing forever. and everybody on that team will be connected to each other forever, and that's something pretty special. >> our team's great, you saw us. we're hanging out, getting ready for the game to get going. i think the receivers would have been able to see the ball and all of that, the biggest issue was with the headsets. i think ours were working, theirs weren't. there was something discussed there with -- what we might have to do if they never come back on, but it was just one of those things that happens. you have to deal with it. i think they were able to get some momentum, because they got their offense going a little bit. >> a few more questions. >> this type of victory was automatic. the way that your team plays. and that -- >> i think it's fitting that we won that way.
3:17am
it's the kind of -- like i said, we're a tough blue collar city. and that's the way our games tend to come down. we were up 28-6. i'm sure a lot of people were nervous, but we're kind of like, this might be pretty easy. and the next thing you know, the niners get back into it, and play great football. we had to grind one out. >> i was sitting on the bench, i'm kind of thinking, man, these guys got it going right now. to be honest, i'm thinking, they're going to put the ball on the end zone. we're going to kick the ball to tie it or win. i assume we would go for two again to make it a three-point game. that's what i was getting in my mind-set ready to do. put us in position to score a touchdown or kick a field goal. >> last question? >> in terms of playing from behind sometimes in tight games, having the ball, you would think you're looking -- you're probably thinking, i'm going to get this ball last if we have to? >> yeah.
3:18am
>> how has it been in these tight situations the last couple years? >> it always helps. it's really what makes a team and forms a team, a schauble champion team, we've been put through those situations, when they come up, we don't know if we're going to be successful, the bottom line is, the moment doesn't get too big. we're comfortable. we've been there before and we've failed before. we've succeeded before. and we're not worried about the outcome. we go out there and play football, execute. we believe that if we do that, and we do that to our ability. eventually it's going to work out. >> okay, guys, that's it, we have to go. >> we're going this way. >> yes, joe flacco we were nervous too because we thought you guys had it in the bag. you're exactly right. he's the mvp and the quarterback for the ravens and we were right along with you. we were nervous and worried and scared, at least us ravens fans. we're talking in the studio about karma.
3:19am
karma after one of the 49ers players made a disparaging remark. and we all started rooting for the ravens, i think everyone knows what i'm talking about, karma is a you know what. as we look at the tale of two cities tonight. on the left baltimore maryland. look at the streets of baltimore, man. people are excited there. and on the right, the city of new orleans, the city that never sleeps. that is the winning city right there in the middle of your screen. we're going to get back to this developing story. we can call it a developing story, we don't know what's going to happen. all the investigation has not been done when it am coulds to this story. someone's talking in my ear, that's why i stopped. this is the wing coach, john harbaugh. >> our team president, every one of our players who you'll be talking to, i hope, shortly. thank you, baltimore fans for
3:20am
sticking with us, for believing in us. we all does it together. i'm talking about the fans and the players and the coaches and the organization, all the little kids wearing purple on friday. all the kids at johns hopkins hospital that sent us that video for. for the 49ers, it's just a great football game. the way that game played out when it was 28-6 and the lights went out. and whatever happened, i just knew with jim harbaugh being on the sideline and all those years we've been together. that game was going to be a dogfight right to the end. those guys were coming back. there's no greater competitor, there's no greater coach in the nfl or in the world as far as i'm concerned than jim harbaugh. the way that team played, proves it. what they've done is unprecedented. and they showed it today, the way they battled back and fought to the end, that's who he is, and that's who they are. and i could not be more proud of
3:21am
him and what he's done there. my family, mom and dad. we love you, thank you, thank you. ingrid and alison, thank you. tom, joannie, your family, thanks for being here. it's a glorious day and gods is gracious and god is good. and god is in control. >> the final series of ray lewis' career was a goal line stand to win the lombardi trophy. he said on the podium, how could it be any other way than that. we said to our team many times, it played out the same way, it wasn't perfect, it wasn't pretty, but it was us. and that's who we are. joe was phenomenal. we're sitting there at 3rd and 6 inches, and joe has three play options, he decides to throw the fade to anquan.
3:22am
he throws it right on the money and anquan goes up and makes the play. that just shows me he has guts. he was doing it all night, making plays. >> it feels good, dave. i'd like to be more profound than that, it feels like ray said it would feel. it feels like all the guys that worked so hard and stuck together through trials and tribulations and difficulties and maintained faith, it feels like they got what they deserved. >> the meeting with jim in the middle was probably the most difficult thing i've ever been associated with in my life. i'm proud of them. thoughts on colin kaepernick and their offense. it's not just colin, he makes it go, but they're offense is incredible.
3:23am
there's so many problems they posed. trying to find a defensive call. i thought they did a tremendous job. our players did a tremendous job of playing with discipline. you make one mistake, you don't cover it exactly right. you don't close exactly right, and they make a big play. that's why they're so dangerous. this team is going to be around for many years to come. what's tha we're a resilient team, that's why we won the game. >> i think all that stuff is overrated. ray, obviously, we love ray. and there's no way our guys would ever want to have not ray go out like this, but it's not just ray. it's a team effort. it's a team accomplishment. like ray's saying right now, we did it. it's a team accomplishment. hey, where's everybody going?
3:24am
go ahead, that's okay. i told them, there's an old motown song, ain't no mountain high enough, ain't no valley low enough, ain't no river wide enough to keep us from wing this championship. that's exactly what i said. it's a great song too. as i said before, not even close, i know who the other coach is, and i know the ways those guys reflect his personality, he wasn't going to allow for it to end that way. they handled that better than we did. the momentum turned and they handled it well. >> your offense has done it. and now your defense led five times -- >> i don't know if i have words for it. i think it speaks to our resolve. it speaks to our determination, our mental toughness, our faith, our trust in one another. our belief in one another. that's what wins and loses games, they always turn on
3:25am
situations like that, our guys have been there in the end. we had five or six in a row like that, it's been incredible. i thought we still have 13 minutes left in the third quarter, we have a lot of football left to play, and i knew who we were playing, the team and the coach that was across the sideline, that was going to be a tough game to the end. we called them up in the huddle right before we went out there. i made two big a deal about that. it had to do with the phones and whether we were going to have communication or take communication away. there's certain rules involved with that, i was trying to make a case. they told me -- it ended up being a moot point, i guess. it was much ado about nothing. jacoby's been a blessing to this team. we're grateful to have him on this team.
3:26am
he's right from here in new orleans. ed reid right from here in new orleans, made the interception. for those guys to be able to do that in their hometown. those were just two phenomenal plays. the kick was well blocked. to make the catch, go down, get up and outrun someone to the corner, i mean, it should go down in super bowl history. >> last question. >> the winning coach of the ravens talking about his experience tonight. you heard him, he said, when i looked on the other side of that field during that 35 minute break with the lights and i looked at my brother jim, i knew they were going to come back and play a hard game in that second half, he knew he was going to be in trouble because he knew that brother. >> we're going to keep a close eye on this press conference. there are police in that crowd in baltimore. and it looks like the crowd's getting pretty crowdy there.
3:27am
police are trying to control the crowd. we're going to keep an eye on that, and all of the press conferences and keep an eye on new orleans to the right of your screen as well as we look at bourbon street. we still have a lot to cover here for you on cnn. try to get to the bottom of that situation that happened in new orleans with the power outage that almost changed the outcome of this game.
3:28am
so...how'd it go? well, dad, i spent my childhood living with monks learning the art of dealmaking. you've mastered monkey-style kung fu? no. priceline is different now. you don't even have to bid. master hahn taught you all that? oh, and he says to say (translated from cantonese) "you still owe him five bucks." your accent needs a little work.
3:29am
3:30am
3:31am
try capzasin-hp. it penetrates deep to block pain signals for hours of relief. capzasin-hp. take the pain out of arthritis. we're following the news when it comes to super bowl xlvii, all the celebrating and exactly what happened when the lights went out in the super bowl. you're looking at live pictures of baltimore maryland, you saw the celebrating happening in the streets of baltimore. you saw police officers, they were on horses trying to get -- corral the crowd. i don't know exactly what's going on, we'll try to get some information for you. we want to tell you about all the information, everything that's going on when it comes to the ravens and the san francisco 49ers. the ravens hung on to beat the 49ers tonight. 34-31. the ravens led 28-6 before a power outage in the superdome put the game on hold for 35 minutes in the third quarter.
3:32am
san francisco came back after the delay to make the game -- to make a game of it, but was never able to take the lead. we're tracking a deadly bus crash in southern california near san bernardino. emergency responders are saying now that multiple people were killed when the bus rolled over in a mountainous area. this is a video late this evening from our affiliate kabc. 27 people were taken from the scene by ambulances. it happened on highway 38 near mentone california, which is east of san bernardino. now, news of a killing at a gun range, everyone involved, the alleged shooter and all the victims are all former mirltry men. one of the dead is well known former navy s.e.a.l. chris kyle who wrote a best selling book all about his career in special operations. he described himself as the most lethal sniper in u.s. military
3:33am
history. here's where he died yesterday. a gun rangeouts side ft. worth texas. a third man shot them both dead. the suspect is now in custody. officials in alabama say they're still communicating with suspect jimmy lee dikes to negotiate the release of a 5-year-old boy. he's been held hostage since being abducted from a school bus tuesday. a funeral was held today for the school bus driver who was held trying to shield the children. police quickly ends a dangerous situation outside london's buckingham palace today. a man who looked to be in his 50s, holding a large knife to his throat broke through a security cordon. he got agitated as police start closing in. he finally lunged at a police officer, there you go right there, you can see it, the officer fired his taser, knocking the man to the ground where police handcuffed him.
3:34am
we want to go now, ray lewis speaking to the media. >> never quitting, and always believing in your dreams and goals. there's no better reward as a father to win a ring on your last ride with my kids being by my side. no matter what was said, no matter what i've been through, my babies have always looked to me as their father. as a man, it's the greatest reward ever, to go out 17 years of a dream. and now i get to hug my babies for the rest of my life, and i get to say i was a champion when i went out. it's just no better way to go out. >> that's ray lewis speaking. he had his children by his side. terence moore, i'm going to go to you.
3:35am
ray lewis involved in a situation here in atlanta, a deadly outcome at a nightclub here. you say he's made a turnaround, he's a changed man. can you hear me, terence? terence moore, are you there? we'll work on getting him back. ray lewis involved in an altercation here back in 2001 at a nightclub. he was acquitted. and sadly someone died during that altercation and there were other people who were implicated in that as well. there are still people who believe ray lewis is guilty for that and should have paid the price, should have gone to jail or spent some time in prison and didn't. they still hold him responsible and they feel he should be held
3:36am
accountable. and there are others who feel he has paid the price, did his time and should move on. he has many critics and many supporters, in the years since the -- the 11 or 12 years since, he has turned his life over to god. you hear him speaking in press conferences speaking about god and his family. to be able to go out on a happy on a high note with his children by his side. he said for him children to see him as a champion. these are people who are celebrating in the streets of baltimore. earlier there was an altercation with police officers who were on horses -- mounted police officers, trying to get some of the crowd to settle down and move back. we don't know what's going on, we do not have control over these pictures because our affiliates are controlling them. this is from their choppers. from their news helicopters.
3:37am
i don't know exactly where this is in baltimore. again, because this is not our chopper. there's some very happy folks there. san francisco 49ers were supposed to win this game. the money was on san francisco, the money was on san francisco and they almost won it after that blackout. but baltimore won. they are really proud of their team, very proud of ray lewis, what they deem as ray lewis' turnaround. and ray lewis has been with this team for a long time. and you know terence moore, there were people saying to me on social media tonight, how can you root for the ravens? of course, you know he was not found guilty.
3:38am
he was acquitted. so ray, don't answer. let's hold our thoughts on ray lewis, he just held a press conference. you and i will talk about it the ups and downs, the ins and outs of ray lewis, what he and the team mean to those people who are celebrating in the streets of baltimore right after this break. we love. so if you're one of them people who gets heartburn and then treats day after day... block the acid with prilosec otc and don't get heartburn in the first place! [ male announcer ] one pill each morning. 24 hours. zero heartburn.
3:39am
3:40am
3:41am
we're back now talking about super bowl xlvii. there's a lot of celebrating going on especially in baltimore, maryland. the police are trying to keep the people in control. they look to be taunting the
3:42am
officers just a bit. we haven't heard of any arrests. the people are excited their team won. they deserve to celebrate but they don't need any houliganism. terrance, let me tell you this. when we talk about the super bowl, i think we're going to talk about the black out. you can pick the order. we're going to talk about the black out and the issue of gay rights. we're going to talk about beyonce and ray lewis who said it's nice to go out as a champion with my children sitting here.
3:43am
terrence, you there? >> reporter: yes, i am. you're asking me about ray lewis? >> there's nobody else on tv but me and you now. >> let's talk about ray lewis and get it out of the way here. people need to leave this man alone. this is a redemption. he is a guy who has said i screwed up. he is a guy that said i'm going to spend the rest of my life telling young people and people in general that i made these mistakes. you don't make these mistakes. now that he's a world champion he's got more ears. he has more people to give this message too. this should be great story. we should celebrate this story. not continue to ridicule this guy for something that he allegedly did and has been proven innocent of.
3:44am
>> i'm not a sports guy. i was working in philadelphia when this happened. was ray lewis acquitted? i don't know everything. was he acquitted? did he take a plea deal? what happened? >> reporter: well, it was a plea. >> he plead out obstruction of justice. >> reporter: right. the matter is he was not found guilty of murder. >> of anything. >> right. >> so listen. ray lewis, there are people that say why are you bringing up his past. ray lewis brought up his own past in the press conference. he keeps saying he's redeemed and a new person. stop saying we're bringing up his past, he's the one doing it and that's why we're talking about it. >> reporter: exactly. which makes the point even more poignant. here's a guy fessing up to what
3:45am
he did in the past and he wants to rectify it in the future. it's a great story. people should embrace this. it's been very few occasions in the history of sports that a guy had retired going out on top. tony rouxsa did it as a manager this could be a possible if people will look at the glass half full instead of the glass half empty as far as ray lewis is concerned. >> it's all at how you look at it. america is a place of redemption stories. and it's all in how you look at it. terrence standby. he went to the game. he has been celebrating as well. we'll talk to lamar campbell after the break.
3:46am
3:47am
welcome back. this is baltimore, maryland. there's a crowd of folks happy their team won. they beat san francisco 49ers. we're on late. we're staying on late because of the unusual circumstances surrounded this super bowl.
3:48am
baltimore ravens win, but there was a 35 minute power outage which almost cost the san francisco 49ers to win after the ravens were surging. they had all the momentum until this will power outage. look at these images. nearly dark superdome. we have terrence moore and then lamar campbell who is host of "life after the game" and a former player for the detroit lions. he's also in new orleans. lamar, what the heck happened as you were watching when this power outage went out. if this had gone on too long, things could have got rowdy in the superdome. >> what an mazing game even after that.
3:49am
it had to be one of strangest third quarters in super bowl history. beyonce put on a great performance. a lot of people were still reveling in her performance. when it came to the lights being out for 30 minutes, one thing i saw is people were having such a good time, i did not hear that much complaining in the dome. at all. the fans were great. people were great. the thing that really affected everything was the momentum of the game. once we came out of that blackout, they were not the team they were before the blackout occurred. >> lamar, i wish i could spend more time with you. we're getting close to the top of the hour. stand by. we'll have more after the break.

we'll get back to the city of baltimore in a moment. lamar campbell is the host of "life after the game" on voice america sports and a former nfl player. he's in new orleans tonight and he joins us now. he was at the game when the black out happened. lamar, you're there. all of a sudden the lights go out an people are sort of sitting around trying to figure out what's going on. this did change the momentum of this game. it could have had a completely different outcome and it almost did. >> it definitely almost did. before the blackout i thought that would be the moment of the super bowl. once the blackout occurred, the san francisco 49ers came out and scored, i said the story of the game will be the blackout if the 49ers come out and win. momentum is a fickle thing.
3:56am
it changes the landscape of the game and the way it could have turned off. it was a great game and baltimore held off for a great win. >> you heard john harbaugh say as i was sitting there during the 35 minutes, i know what kind of team they are, i know what kind of coach he is. i knew they were going to come back strong every minute that we were not on that field playing. i know they were getting stronger mentally and they were going to come back and play harder. >> we have a chance to catch your composure, i think san francisco got a little shocked, they had at chance get their momentum. they got their mind together. they came back a more confident team. they beat the atlanta falcons last week. there's a situation they have been in before.
3:57am
it gave them the confidence and now they came out and played that way. >> lamar campbell, thank you very much. i want to go to the baltimore police commissioner. anthony bhatts. we're going to go to the police department just as soon as we get it. we want to find out what's going on there. we saw what looks to us to be a a little bit of tussling in the streets. we don't know. with some of the mounted police officers there. commissioner, thanks for joining us this evening here on cnn. it appears some of the officers got some of the people off the streets. >> my sound is really bad but i think you're asking for an update. just quickly, go ravens. we have a number of officers in and around the area and have been there for a time. we have two locations. it's our federal hill which is the southwest part of our city
3:58am
and phils point in the southeast of our city. we probably have a thousand in each location. they're just celebrating, and i think things are going well. >> we did see some mounted police officers in the video and then moving some people back. what was that all about. >> i wanted them to start moving the corral in a slow pace. i think the pace was too fast. we had to give people time to celebrate. we expect them to be out here for an hour or so. we'll slowly start making a push. we're not looking to cause a bigger problem than what it is. we know people are happy. we're trying to redirect traffic that's coming into the city. off of some of our main freeways
3:59am
that are taking place. other than that, things are going well. >> we're looking at live pictures now, commissioner, and it appears to be people who are in track, some of those stopping cars. have you had any arrests? >> at the beginning we had a couple of arrests. yes, we have people who are running between cars and not causing problems other than jumping up and down. the bigger concern right now is not feeding more people to come in. if you can advise people we're not allowing more people in the downtown area. we're going to start redirecting them out and probably within the hour. until then we're going to celebrate and be happy that the ravens have won. >> thank you anthony batta, baltimore, maryland police commissioner. >> it's hour two. these guys have to get off the streets. it's been an interesting evening here on cnn reporting on this and seeing the blackout at
